The Wardens rugby team defend­ed the Commander F.B Kean Shield at Nasova ground in Suva yesterday

The team defeated the National Fire Authority side 17-16.

Playing in heavy underfoot, both teams struggled to play in the wet.

But Wardens scored their first try through Asela Ratudamu

Halftime: Wardens 5-0 National Fire Authority

Wardens maintained the momentum and Netava Koroisau scored their sec­ond try.

Viliame Maione of NAF kicked two penalties followed by two tries to Vuivi­wa Naduwalo and Luke Mocevakaca to lead 16-10

But Jone Nagalu sealed the win with a try which was converted.

Fulltime: Wardens 17-16 National Fire Authority .

The first challenge was held last year to com­memorate Corrections Day- the 143rd year of the Fiji Corrections Ser­vice existence in Fiji.

It also serves as an ex­ercise to foster better relations between the two disciplined services who both have talented rugby players many of whom have represent their provinces in the Skipper Cup Premier­ship and for the coun­try Swire Shipping Fiji Warriors, Fiji Airways Fi­jian 7s and the Fiji Airways Flying Fijians.

Comments: Wardens team coach Sailo­si Naiteqe said; I am really happy with what the players have achieved. We were expecting a strong game from the Fire team.

National Fire Authority coach Akuila Nasi said; “We need to focus on our dis­cipline.”
